    Learning objectives

    Upon completion of the seminar, students will be able to

    • demonstrate in-depth knowledge of a field-specific topic through writing and presenting a Bachelor thesis,
    • search for, critically assess, and integrate sources into the argumentation of their thesis,
    • recognise standard citation practices and plagiarism-avoidance strategies for proper documention of sources,
    • identify the organisational and language features specific to a Bachelor thesis in their field of study, and
    • provide critical feedback to others' work and respond to feedback on their own work.


    A minimum of 90 ECTS credits of BSc degree studies completed with an emphasis on basic and major studies. A student must have a valid personal study plan approved before entering the seminar. It is also strongly recommended that students have already taken the written (w) skills component of their mandatory foreign language credits.
